Acer Bluetooth USB dongle

by Volker Weber


I just love this device. It is very small, lightweight and adds Bluetooth capability to PCs and Macs. On the Mac it is pure plug&play. On PCs you have to install the Bluetooth stack that comes with the device.

I already own two of these sticks and will most likely buy more.


What's so good about the Acers? Are there any other good brands?

Acer is only the brand printed on the shell. It is made by Cambridge Silicon Radio.

This Bluetooth Dongle is the cheapest and it works great. I have one.

Found the acer BT-500 to be one of the cheapest. As mentioned - it installs easily (appart from the request for some files from windows service pack 4 - which I ignored) and transfers data back and forth between my S55 and Laptop. Hope to integrate an ipaq soon!
Apart from that - very nice site. Clean design. Informative.

Does anybody know if the bt 500 dongle works with a logitech headset HS01-V16? If so , what software are you using?
